This year inGauge was invited back by Galilee Energy to design and drill their 2019 development wells as part of the continued development of their Glenaras Gas Project. As those involved will remember, the 2018 campaign was the first attempt to deliver a lateral program in the R3 seam. One which proved pretty challenging and resulted in some hole collapse and lost geosteering BHA events. This year the team re-engineered the wells from the methodology for landing the 8 ½” hole section, setting and cementing the 7” production casing and methodology and design for geosteering the lateral sections. We’re pleased to announce that the hard work has paid off, as today marks the completion of the third and final well (Glenaras 16L) in the 3 well lateral program, with the three wells being delivered safely, on schedule and on budget. The three new wells (Glenaras 14L, 15L & 16L) now combine with the previous 2 laterals to form a shielded 5-well pilot for enhanced drawdown of the reservoir.

inGauge provided engineering and project execution for the 2021 workover campaign aimed at enhancing production from the Glenaras Lateral Pilot area. The programme has now been completed and is showing signs of success with gas rates in the field increasing to near 80 Mscfd.
inGauge Energy has started a project with a major Australian gas producer to review and update their well integrity management system. The aim of the project is to be much more pre-emptive and targeted in response to well integrity issues to ensure money is spent resolving issues rather than simply re-confirming known problems.
Empire today updated the market with images of the flare at Carpentaria 1. This is a particularly exciting time for Empire as years of work starts to show itself in gas to surface. Tom (inGauge Completion Engineer) is getting to be an expert with the inGuage drone, taking some fantastic images of the flare shining forth on site, as the sun sets over the vast expanse of the Empire acreage. Tom was quoted as saying that using the drone was the only way of keeping Kelvin out of the photos.
